  • Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “President Biden Donates 500 Million Covid Vaccine Doses” – below is their description.

    President Joe Biden announced the U.S. will begin shipping a half-billion donated doses of Pfizer Inc. coronavirus vaccines to countries in “dire need” in August, making good on a promise to lead the global campaign against the pandemic.

    Biden said Thursday the U.S. purchase and donation of Pfizer’s shots would be the largest of any single country so far, and that the vaccines would come “with no strings attached” — veiled criticism of Russia and China, which he’s accused of using vaccines as leverage in their foreign policy.

    “We know the tragedy. We also know the path to recovery,” Biden said at Tregenna Castle in St. Ives, U.K. ahead of a Group of Seven summit. “The key to reopening and growing economies is to vaccinate your people.”
